Putin and Trump both love “bikers”. Who are Trump’s “biker” friends? Is Spetsnaz Motorcycle club connected to them? Spetsnaz MC was formed in Florida just before Trump announced his candidacy. Spetsnaz is the name for Russia Special Forces. Historically, Spetsnaz “referred to special military units controlled by the military intelligence service GRU (Spetsnaz GRU)“. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spetsnaz The president of the Spetsnaz Motorcycle club is listed as a Broward County Florida Sheriff’s Office Detective, named German Bickbau. According to the Miami Herald, Bickbau wrote in 2014 asking to form an affiliate of the infamous pro-Putin Russian Night Wolves Motorcycle Club-Gang. “In March 2014, the Night Wolves conducted intimidation and criminal activities within Ukraine and also abducted and subsequently assaulted a Ukrainian Border Guard official.  This biker group also participated in the storming of the gas distribution station in Strikolkove and the storming of the Ukrainian Naval Forces Headquarters in Sevastopol… The Night Wolves have been closely connected to the Russian special services, have helped to recruit separatist fighters for Donetsk and Luhansk, Ukraine, and were deployed to the cities of Luhansk and Kharkiv.  The Night Wolves group is being designated because it is an entity that is responsible for or complicit in, or has engaged in, directly or indirectly, actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine.” “Treasury Targets Additional Ukrainian Separatists and Russian Individuals and Entities“, 12/19/2014 , https://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/jl9729.aspx.

Kyiv Protests Putin’s Visit to Annexed Crimea
By RFE/RL August 11, 2019 12:19 PM
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has protested Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest visit to Ukraine’s Crimea region, calling a it a “gross violation” of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“Attempts by the Russian side and the mass media to describe such ‘visits’ as ‘ordinary’ domestic trips by Russian officials are futile,” the ministry said in a statement on August 11, adding that Crimea was an “integral part” of Ukraine.

On August 10, Putin was shown on state television in a leather jacket at a biker show organized by the Night Wolves motorcycle club in Sevastopol, a city in the Crimean Peninsula that Moscow seized in 2014.

The Night Wolves club is known for its allegiance to the Kremlin.

Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014 after Moscow-friendly Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was pushed from power by the pro-European Maidan protest movement the previous month.

Moscow has also fomented unrest and backed separatists in eastern Ukraine, where more than 13,000 people have been killed in the ensuing conflict since April 2014.

Putin’s visit to Sevastopol took place as tens of thousands of opposition supporters gathered in Moscow to demand fair municipal elections. More than 250 people were detained by police. https://www.voanews.com/europe/kyiv-protests-putins-visit-annexed-crimea
